How can I participate in CFN Online?
First register to CFN Online. Registering grants you access to apply to companies, participate in company seminars, and receive the latest information about the event as well as company’s application process. Next, please create your CFN resume and check participating companies’ job postings. Having a completed CFN resume allows you to easily apply to companies. Check the list of participating companies frequently to give you ample time to know the companies. We recommend that you actively apply to companies that you are interested in.

Since there will not be actual interviews held at an event venue, there is a possibility that the selection process will proceed as soon as you submit your application. Once you apply, the company will contact you directly about the next step.

Additionally, by registering, you will be able to participate in the Live Session Day.
When and how are interviews conducted?
The date of the interview and how the interview will be conducted will vary by company. Most companies will conduct interviews using web conferencing tools (ex. Skype, Zoom, Google Hangout, Webex, etc.). The company will contact applicants directly regarding the date of the interview and the method.
I heard that I can have online interviews through CFN. How does it work?
Companies currently participating in CFN Online Spring can conduct online interviews through CFN. An invitation to schedule an interview will be sent to your My CFN inbox from the company. You can reserve your interview date and time directly from the invitation. On the day of the interview, you can access the interview page from the My CFN menu “Application History/Manage Reservations” and clicking "Start Interview.”
